RISD formally recognizes students who achieve high grade-point averages each semester and at graduation. Students who graduate with a cumulative grade-point average of at least 3.75 will have their degree conferred with honors.

Students who achieve a semester grade-point average of at least 3.75 with a minimum of 12 credits will be considered for honors at the end of each semester. Courses taken at Brown through cross-registration must be taken within the A, B, C letter-grade system in order for these credits to apply toward the minimum of 12 credits required for consideration for semester honors.


Graduates let loose at the close of RISD's colorful outdoor Commencement.
